RE: today


That is wise, Theresa!  You will probably get it done this weekend for the
area you are working with.  Yes, the slotted saw blade also makes for a
better cut.  We started just at sunrise while we were laying the driveway
and quit during the heat of the day and went back at it for an hour or so
closer to sunset to keep from getting fried on concrete pavers.  You are
smart to take that approach.  

I'd love to see a photo or two when you get it done!

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

We will be getting a wet saw, but one specifically for pavers and brick (has
a slotted saw blade).  Your project was much bigger than ours.  I'm hoping
to finish by Monday, but we'll see. It will depend on how hot it gets this
weekend.  I don't plan on roasting jsut for the sake of bricks.
